The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health on Friday called on Disneyland to add entryway closures and sensor-equipped guards around the base of cars on the Roger Rabbit Car Toon Spin.

I've been to Disneyland hundreds of times over the last two decades and have been writing the Funland theme park blog for about four years now. As a result, people are always asking me how to do everything at Disneyland in a single day. The short answer is you probably can't. It can be a struggle for even hard-core fans with military assault-like strategies. The longer answer is there's lots of ways to maximize your time in the park and get on the most rides possible. PHOTOS: How to do Disneyland in a day So in honor of Disneyland's 24-hour Leap Day celebration , here are my seven tips for tackling Disneyland in a day: Tip 1: If you're trying to get the most out of your day at Disneyland , I always recommend arriving just before the park opens in the morning, staying until the park closes at night and taking a long break in the heat of the afternoon at your hotel pool or cocktail bar. It may sound like a long day, but you'll get more done in the first two hours and the last two hours of your day than if you spent 15 hours straight at the park.

Disneyland visitors will soon be able to embark on a journey past falling dinnerware, exploding fireworks and the menacing maw of a steam shovel--all in about four minutes. It's all part of Roger Rabbit's Car-Toon Spin, a new ride that was previewed Thursday at the Anaheim theme park and is scheduled to open officially on Jan. 26. The attraction was giving test rides Thursday as part of the celebration of Mickey Mouse's 65th birthday.
